Hedge fund managers have many investment options. They can invest in niche markets or pursue special strategies. As a result, hedge fund investments are less correlated with other asset classes such as equities or bonds, and can help diversify a portfolio.
Our Hedge Funds platform is responsible for advising and managing multi-manager and secondary market hedge fund portfolios for both institutional and individual investors around the world, providing alternative products and solutions. The goal is to deliver both highly liquid and illiquid, uncorrelated returns by using capital efficiently while providing transparent risk reporting.
We manage approx. 0.5 billion USD* in Hedge Funds. Our offering includes investment opportunities in primary fund of funds, secondary opportunities and direct co-investment.
The portfolio construction is top-down and bottom-up. In our strategic considerations, we take into account both the assessments from the global CIO Office and the outlook for various hedge fund sub-strategies. Each strategy is reviewed every quarter by the hedge fund strategy committee. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches are discussed. And every month the hedge fund advisory committee meets to review and monitor the composition of the portfolio.
